At the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the quirky time travel dramedy "Safety Not Guaranteed" debuted to an enthusiastic audience. The film got a more muted response in theaters five months later, as it opened this weekend with a good-but-not-great $100,000, according to an estimate from distributor FilmDistrict. Playing in nine theaters, that amounted to a so-so per-location average of $11,000. The movie, about a magazine writer investigating a man who wants to travel back in time, features filmmaker-actor Mark Duplass and "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza.

Playwright William Inge was part and parcel of the 1950s, a time of scenery-chomping melodrama in the American theater zeitgeist. If not delicately interpreted, his plays can seem positively sappy by modern standards. Fortunately, the current revival of Inge's 1950 drama “Come Back, Little Sheba” at A Noise Within largely steers clear of blatancy, thanks to the skillful co-direction of Julia Rodriguez-Elliott and Geoff Elliott. When the characters do veer into apparent superficiality, it's very much to a poignant and devastating point.

Ever since the misfortune, Alexis and Charlie have spent many sunsets sitting in Silver Lake with the car windows open, listening for Lola. She flew the coop June 28. It was late afternoon, and Lola and Charlie were perched amid the bamboo on Alexis Readinger's back patio, pecking at a clove of garlic. Readinger left them there — she had a meeting with a client inside — and when she came out, Lola was gone. Readinger, 35, was supposed to leave for Brazil the next day. But she postponed the trip and launched an intensive search for her beloved parrot.

I reserve a special loathing for flavored alcohol. Atrocities like pomegranate, cotton candy and melon-flavored vodkas make me want to rip my taste buds out by their roots. And don't even get me started about flavored whiskey. Yes, the makers of Fireball cinnamon-flavored whiskey are rolling in the large profits they make off unseasoned drinkers at keg parties, but they should also be made to roll in a fire pit. May I suggest the special place in hell reserved for those who would befoul the sacred treaty between brown liquor and a sense of (or at least an aspiration to)

Taped to a wall above the workbench in race driver Jim Crawford's garage is a piece of adhesive tape with these words: "Miracles Take a Few Days. The Impossible a Little Longer." Exactly one week after the worst wreck at the Indy 500 this year, the impossible happened. Crawford's crew spent the night assembling his 1987 Lola following its rapid trip to England for repairs after the crash in practice last week. The crew of Kenny Bernstein's King Motorsport team got the car ready in time to take part in today's two-hour test period.

Lola's on Fairfax, where owner Loren Dunsmore claims to have invented the apple martini more than 15 years ago, is in the process of reinventing itself. That means a new chef, an updated look and a whole new take on the martini. For the latter feat, barman J Graham worked magic in his liquor lab with Tanteo tequilas, which are infused with a variety of flavors including cocoa and chocolate. One of his most popular concoctions is a margarita-martini hybrid (call it a margatini?) named La Vida Loca.

Lola, the African gray parrot whose Silver Lake owner put up billboards when she went missing, has been returned home safe and sound. She was discovered two miles away, on the balcony of a house in East Hollywood. Margaret Starr, the home's owner, spotted her perched in a pot of geraniums after she attracted the attention of Starr's cats. Starr, 71, slipped on a pair of oven mitts and picked the bird up, putting an end to Lola's 24-day adventure in the wilds of Los Angeles.

Rick Mears upstaged Indianapolis 500 champion Emerson Fittipaldi to win the pole position for the Miller High Life 200 today in Milwaukee. Mears waited out a five-hour rain delay, then recorded a lap of 22.385 seconds and a speed of 160.822 m.p.h. in his Penske-Chevy. That put him on the pole for today's race ahead of Fittipaldi. Earning spots in the second row were Michael Andretti, with a speed of 155.159 m.p.h. in a Lola-Chevy, and Bobby Rahal, at 154.752 m.p.h. in a Lola-Cosworth.

At 34, Seth Cripe has spent more years around wine than you'd think. The owner-winemaker of LOLA Wines , which he founded in 2008, moved to Napa Valley right after he dropped out of high school. He said that although he wouldn't recommend that exact career path, he was so fortunate to work for Swanson and Caymus . His stint at Caymus Vineyards lasted a dozen years, and in the end, he was running the vineyards there. When Caymus was developing its Belle Glos project, he, as the only available young and single person, was sent off to France for four or five months a year to learn what he could.

Your Sister's Sister Available on VOD beginning Thursday Writer-director Lynn Shelton's follow-up to her hit indie comedy "ENMV0002398"> "Humpday" stars Mark Duplass as a sad sack who has a drunken sexual encounter with the sister of his late brother's ex-girlfriend. The indiscretion threatens to derail not only the siblings' rapport but also his own friendship with the woman who once loved his brother (Emily Blunt). As the trio - rounded out by Rosemarie DeWitt - spend time together at a house on a remote Washington island, plenty of unresolved feelings get dredged up, in that casually honest, frequently funny way that made "Humpday" such a delight.

Lola's in West Hollywood makes the astounding claim that it invented the apple martini. The Enabler's only attempt at inventing a drink was a never-repeated blend of bourbon and orange juice (the "Dirty South Breakfast," which seemed like a good idea at the time), and we're skeptical of anyone who thinks they came up with something new to do with liquor. Yet after sampling some of Lola's 50 other martinis, the Enabler is more convinced. Some, like the Still Hoping (vodka and tomato juice with pickled baby tomatoes)

It has been a hallmark of the series "Law & Order" that its format — which lasted two decades in its original flavor and lives on in the current first season of NBC's "Law & Order: Los Angeles," or "LOLA" — has mattered as much as the characters who inhabit it. But of the many actors who have passed through this system over the years, perhaps none has departed quite as remarkably as did Skeet Ulrich, formerly the top-billed star of the L.A. franchise,...

At the bottom of a culvert beneath an underpass near the 405 Freeway in Culver City, a dead body is half submerged in the water, trapped in a net that is catching garbage from the rushing water draining to the ocean. "There is something in the water down there!" shouts a woman ? who spots the body as she is rollerblading along Ballona Creek ? to a nearby maintenance worker. The worker hesitatingly approaches and lifts his arm to cover his face, wincing at the stench of the rotting corpse.
